Hai Tien Lo Weekend a la carte Buffet Brunch.

It was a rainy day ,took the lift to the 37 flr as the lift moved it seem slow with beautiful  rain filled view.But were there in no time. Was here giving my sis a birthday treat and we went for the weekend a la carte buffet brunch.

                                 A beautiful rain drops view from the lift. 

We order all the Chef's signature dishes first. All one serving only....

Bird nest tarts.The bird nest itself was tasteless the tart was quite okay.Hey it's Bird's Nest so I am enjoying.

  Imperial Lobster Dumpling. Was big and had chucks of lobsters inside.To be honest and could not taste it was lobster or big prawns.They said Lobster so must be lobster.Nice feeling eating lobster.

Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Crab Meat. Had lot fins and crab meat as you can see.
It tasted like normal but I never had a buffet with so much  Shark's fins and crab in the soup  .This a alone could cover near half the buffet price.Shoik! la

The next forth coming dishes all can be

  Steamed Pork Dumpling with Fish Roe was good

      Poached Beijing Dumplings stuffed with Chicken & Prawn in Chilli Vinegar Sauce was very good.

  Steamed Barbecued Pork Buns. Was sweet and nice but a little too sweet for me.
Pan-fried Rice Flour Rolls with Crispy Conpoy with Homemade X.O Chilli Sauce.Well never had fried Chee  Cheong Fun before it was different.Taste wise it was plain but taken with the sauce it was quite okay.

Homemade Fish Noodles Braised with Sea Cucumber & Prawns.Missed taking photo... time was running out.It was actually quite good.

They had a small buffet station with some cakes,soy pudding, kueys, fruits,duck tongues, duck wings,fried dumpling and barbecued pork ribs.

Had some dumpling and ribs.The dumpling was cold can't taste anything much but ribs were surprising good had a  slight crisp just a touch of sweetness.
 They forgot some of our orders.We were not served anything for over an hour from 1.05p.m to 2.15. 2p.m was suppose be last order.There were about 9 more dishes to come about 2.15p.m all the dishes came instantaneously at one go,There was no last order asked by the staff .
It was full house the I think the wait staff  were trying their best to serve being  friendly and were apologetic.
Over all the food was good will I go back ............
